We stayed here whilst visiting family in Newlands and stayed in the cottage which is a detached unit from the main guest house. Very nice room with separate living area and access straight onto the patron / pool where we spent 2 very nice afternoons. Very friendly owners / staff. Highly recommend.

A beautiful place. Excellent value. Should be rated 5. Will definitely return. The staff are welcoming, the breakfast good and the environment charming.It has a beautiful swimming pool, a cozy lapa and an established garden. The guest house is located very close to Claremont and UCT.

I recently visited Wild Olive on a business trip. Great stay. Massive room, great shower, decent Wifi, good breakfast and friendly staff. Not much more that I can ask for. The location is also perfect and close to some of delightful restaurants.

I stayed here for a single night and had a pleasant experience. I think Capetown in general oozes with a certain relaxedness and this place is a good example of the spirit of Capetown. People were very friendly and the room comfortable.Breakfast was delicious. Too bad the fitness facilities were under construction.
